New Equipment

Been making some upgrades for the home brewery. First, I moved from a bucket to a glass fermenting tank. I also upgraded the aeration process with a 5 micron stone and aquarium pump for heartier fermentation. Bought a carboy top and stainless racking cane to round out the fermentation upgrade. Nice Kraeusen action a few days into the brew! Don't think I'll need the double air lock next time.

My next step is to go all grain and leave the kits behind. I aquired a 48 qt cooler that used to be my Dad's who worked for Pabst 35 years or so.

I built a manifold for the extracting the malt from the grain.

And there it is, ready for the first ever all grain brew!
